Happiness Links

Happiness is interesting.  Many of you may want to do more reading and/or watching on this topic. Try these in order of my preference for:

• An interesting, amusing and charming TED video entitled “The Surprising Science of Happiness”:

• A daily update on the happiness of the USA from Gallup:

and scroll left for a statistical overview of twelve measures.

• A picture of the distribution of happiness in the USA:

and click on the happiness button on the left sidebar.  Seems as if those of us who live in the upper Midwest are the happiest people in the USA.

• A short interesting read on the distribution of happiness across the world:

• If you who want a good read, 300 pages, on the philosophical, moral and scientific history of happiness:
